"Thanks speedyjerry,
Yes, West Palm Beach Florida. Being from San Diego, I have heard about alligators and crocadiles, are they really a concern? Or do they stay away from people? Any concern for the dogs?
I also heard not to wear anything shiney in the ocean because of Barracuda. """"""""""""""""""""""""""""
Gators stay in the swamps, not many around salt water, they will catch a dog on occasion. Croc's are very rare down here and I never heard of a Barracuda attacking anyone, shark attacks are extremely rare, you hear of two or three a week statewide with millions of people in the water on a daily basis. There's a huge demand for qualified construction Super's. My company will put you to work tomorrow. Lot's of nice country roads out west for scooterpootin.


Thanks speedyjerry,
My Company has a big job out there. I specialize in the MEP trades and start up and commissioning. Thanks for all the info. I meet with the powers to be next week and will more than likely fly out there to check it out in a few weeks. What kind of construction do you do?

You don't speak spanish?

There is no nite life, short of smoking cuban cigars with the old folks and an occasional game of shuffleboard for those active bikers. The only music they have in Florida is Gloria Estafan and if you want to dance, you have to learn salsa. There is no entertainment, no biking events, but there are thousands of bugs who especially love tender skin like yours. There are no animals because they are too miserable there and there is no room to play ball. There are wild crocs all over the place and I've heard that they will bite your pecker off if your not careful so make sure you don't pee outside!


I have to agree with Curlyrider on many points, The chamber of commerce paints a pretty picture of Florida with Flamingo's everywhere, makes you think Florida is some tropical paradise.
Yeah Right!
Disneyworld Sux after the second time you stand in line an hour for one ride and unless you have a masters in Politician, you can bet some Mexican will do what you do for six dollas an hour.
But what the hey move here an find out for yourself, they say those who move here, die here!

Peace

SLB

I am considering a job oppurtunity in West Palm Beach. I have been on the west coast for most of my life and know nothing about Florida besides hurricanes. I've been in San Diego for years. What can anyone tell me about the place that does not show up on the chamber of commerce web site for West Palm Beach? I really know nothing about Florida. Thanks.



Housing is very expensive here. Watch what part of county you move to, unless you have guns and ammo. Traffic a b*itch sometimes. Alot of things to do. I hope you like very flat country. Can you speak Spanish??

Hey, I grew up in Ft. Lauderdale, have lived in Vero Beach now for 20 years. West Palm is a great "city" area. They have a lot going on, it's Florida, the weather is great...riding year round, you name it, in Palm Beach lives the rich, very rich and famous!! Also, you have your blue collar areas and your poor area's, just like any big city. Florida has way more to offer than hurricane's!!
